In 1991, founding Music Director Barry Jekowsky asked Jane Seeborg to form an auxiliary group to raise funds in support of the orchestra. A group of seven women named the group the California Symphony Alliance. The Alliance held its first fundraiser at Tourelle's Restaurant in Lafayette honoring guest conductor David Ogden Stiers. Today the Alliance totals more than 40 members and raises thousands each year for the California Symphony in addition to providing volunteer support for its education programs and events. Alliance members pay annual dues to join and hold monthly meetings and social events.
